As a token of our appreciation
devotion and interest in every student activity,
this issue of the
is respectfully dedicated to
our beloved friend and instructor
BatJin WB. fot)nston
Fourteen years ago the Class of 1909 published
the initial edition of the "Alciphronian" — the first
annual to be published by a Boys' High graduating
class. Since that time many annuals have been
published, every one a monument to the school life
o£ "ole high school".
If, in this year's annual we have managed to keep
up the good vi^ork started in '09, and at the same
time have recorded the more pleasant memories of
our high school careers, we have done well.
Should this work in later years arouse in the
minds of any present student or graduate, pleasant
memories of the joyful days spent in Old High
School — our efforts have been amply rewarded.
History of the Boys' High School
OYS' High School of Atlanta is ranked among the highest
and most renowned preparatory schools in the Southern
States. Its half century of progress and prosperity since
its establishment is unequalled by that of any similar in-
The doors of the school were first thrown open in
February, of 1872, in the old James building on White-
hall street. The first enrollment numbered one hundred and twenty-
five students, while the faculty consisted of three teachers only
— Prof. W. M. Jones, who was both principal and teacher of the Senior
Class, and Mr. E. G. Moore and Mr. W. A. Bass, who taught the Junior
and Freshman classes, respectively. Professor Bass remained a mem-
ber of the faculty until his death in 1911. It is largely to his faithful
and untiring work that much of the success of the school is due.
The first students were offered a three-year classical course in
preparation for college work. The first graduating class, composed of
only five students, received their diplomas July 1, 1873. During this
year — the second in the school's existence — the enrollment had increased
A new building with additional and better facilities was secured on
Ivy street during the year 1874. During this year the now famous Al-
ciphronian Literary and Debating Society was formed. This society,
still in existence, is devoted to the development of public speakers, and
many of the South's greatest statesmen and orators received their early
training in the society.
From 1874 to 1883 enrollment dropped off considerably, and a crisis
was reached in 1877, when the school was forced to close because of
lack of appropriations. From 1876 to 1883 the school occupied the base-
ment of the Girls' High School, after which it was removed to what are
now the capitol grounds. The change proved unsatisfactory, however,
and in 1884 back into the basement it went. A building on Washington
street, across from the capitol, was secured in 1888, and the school re-
mained in these quarters for the next two years, following which it was
moved into the old medical college building back of the Lowry Nat-
A permanent hotne was erected on the corner of Courtland and
Gilmer streets in 1896, and in this building the school has remained un-
til the present day. As soon as the school was moved into its new home
the curriculum was extended to offer classical, business, and scientific
courses. The new^ departments of science and business attracted such
a large number of students that it became necessary for them to seek
separate quarters. The business department joined that of the Girls'
High School to form the present Commercial High School. The Tech-
nological department, then housed in the basement with inadequate
space and facilities, was removed in 1909, and has grown into the present
The Boys' High School today is headed by Professor H. O. Smith,
under whose leadership the school has shown remarkable progress dur-
ing the past three years. Professor Smith has served on the faculty of
the Boys' High School for fourteen years, having come to us in 1909.
Boys' High maintains an exceedingly high standard of scholarship,
making it possible for our graduates to enter any college in the coun-
try without condition. Our athletic teams, composed only of students
who make a required scholarship grade in all studies, are uniformly vic-
In 1919 a Greek class was formed by Professor P. H. Epps, head
of the ancient language department and assistant principal, and at the
present time a regular three year course in Greek is offered, an achieve-
ment of which no other preparatory school in the state can boast.
The school has always aspired to the highest ideals. Its graduates
stand high in college and civil life. It is indeed an institution of which
the city, state, and nation may be justly proud.

Senior Class History
EPTEMBER, four years ago, brought a class of about 150
freshmen through the famous portals of an equally famous
Boys' High School. With the exception of a few beautiful
countenances in the group, there was no hint in the faces
of these first year men of the success and accomplishments
the class was destined to make later on.
But, many days have passed since that famous Septem-
ber morning, and every day has brought new laurels to the Class of '23.
The unwritten motto of the Class has been "Service", and every individ-
ual in the group has contributed his part to the success of the class.
Every student activity has looked to the Class of '23 for help and
leadership, and have found a willing answer to their pleas for aid. The
Class has never failed to do its part for every enterprise and activity
in the school, and as the last days of high school life draw to a close,
the members of the Class rejoice in the knowledge that they have helped
to bring glory to "old high school".
To athletics, the Class of '23 has contributed much valuable talent.
Kells Boland, Cecil Jamison, Daniel Boone, Robert Rives, Sam Carter,
Robert Pegram, William J. Dunn, William Noyes, Albert Whittle, Wil-
liam Wardlaw, "Battling" Gregory, and a score of other members of the
Class have won fame for their performance on the athletic field.
Scholarship has found the Class in the lead again, with Gilbert
Boggs, George Seal, James Rikard, Kells Boland, Clement Clay, and
many more, holding the highest averages in the school.
To literary work, the Class has made one of its highest contribu-
tions. Elbert Roane, Kells Boland, Gilbert Boggs, Harllee Branch, Jr.,
and Francis Parker have been responsible in no small measure for the
success of the school weekly. The Tatler. To debating the Class has
given such stars as Gordon Smith, Paul Clement, Harry DeLaney, and
Harllee Branch, Jr.
In various other enterprises members of the Class have played im-
portant roles. Never has a worthy cause failed to find support. from the
Class of '23, and this support has undoubtedly meant the very success
of the enterprise in many instances.
The Class has set an example for future Boys' High classes to fol-
low, has set a goal for underclassmen to aim at, and yet the members of
the Class still feel that they are indebted to the famous school in which
they have spent the past four years.
FRANK T. ALEXANDER
Alexander came to us at Christmas time this
year from Louisville, Kentucky — the land of
thoroughbreds. He made a neat Christmas present,
to say the least. He is tall, good looking, but a
bit shy — except when he is around the women.
Entered, '23; Inter-class Track Meet, '23;
Dumb-bell Litprary Society, '23.
MARION HENRY ALLEN
As Major of the Boys' High Battalion during the
past year, Marion has won much praise, both for
his ability to command, and his sincerity in every
undertaking. Marion is popular with faculty and
student-body alike, and numbers his friends at
Boys' High by the score.

JOSEPH LYNCH ANTHONY
A Greek scholar, and a Latin sl;iark, who rivals
his teachers in the ability to translate and parse
these "Dead" languages is Joseph Anthony. Joe
has had many honors bestowed upon him during
his four years at Boys' High, and has merited
every one of them.
Plutonian, '23; Business Manager, Tatler, '22;
Advertising Manager, Alciphronian, '23; Honor
WILLARD T. BANDY
Willard entered Boys' High in 1922 from some
school in Richmond, Virginia, and has been in the
possession of Mr. A. G. Martin ever since. Professor
Martin has developed in him a poet, actor, and
dramatist of note.
Entered, '22; Plutonian, '23; Dramatic Club, '23.
JAMES ARTHUR BANTON
Banton has been in Boys' High a long time, and
has spent all his time bringing glory to the school.
He is a crack shot, being captain of the Rifle team,
and a military genius of true worth. As Banton
says, he realized after his first year in Boys' High
that the Class of '23 was the class for him, and so
he remained to graduate with it.

STEPHEN T. BARNETT
' 'Steve' '
Steve possesses two assets that are valuable to
any man. He is exceptionally good-lookin', and
has a disposition that makes friends for him wherever
he may go. He is an important member of the
Gilbert, Barnett and Minnich quartette, and it is
rumored that he is very popular with the ladies.

Mandolin Club, '22; Sergeant, R. O. T. C, '22.
JAMES LOWELL BATTLE
Battle has been one of the annual staff's biggest
assets this year. His drawings, over which he must
have spent many valuable hours, claim much of
the responsibility for the success of this edition of
the "Alciphronian". (If there happens to be any.)
He is the best artist Boys' High has had in a long,
Assistant Art Editor, Alciphronian, '22; Art
R. D. BENSON
Benson has been mighty quiet during his career
at Boys' High, and refuses to tell us much about
himself. Like Napoleon, and other conquerors of
the world, he believes in keeping people curious.
Plutonian; President, Demosthenian Society, '21;
Sergeant, R. O. T. C, '22-'23.
Berlin has shown remarkable energy and ability
during his career at Boys' High, and has been able
to graduate in three years despite the efforts of
the faculty to prohibit such a record.
Entered, '20; Graduated, '23.
Alciphron i a n IIS
GEORGE T. BIRD
George has taken a leading part in musical work
during his four years at Boys' High, being a member
of both the orchestra and band. But, music has
not claimed all of his time. He stands high in
scholarship, and tho' he is small of stature, he
promises to be a big man some day.
Orchestra, '22-'23; Band, '21-'22-'23; Hi-Y Club,
Here is a fellow who says little and does much.
He is very modest, howrever, and for some unknown
reason objects to us listing the many activities in
which he takes part. Jack will startle the world
some day, if he'll only quit wasting so much time
cussing and discussing things with his friend,
Leo graduated from Boys' High in three and half
years — an unusual record for our school. During
his last few months at Boys' High, Leo made
almost every out-of-town football game, usually
carrying several fellow-students with him in his
car. His oratorical ability won recognition for him.
Christmas Exercise Debater, '21-'22; Inter Class
Debate, '22; Class Prophet, '23; Honor Roll, '22-'23;
RICHARD NELSON BLOCK
Dick entered Boys' High from Ohio at the begin-
ning of his senior year, and in nine short months
accomplished more than some fellows have been
able to do in four years. In athletics, and scholar-
ship as well, he has made an enviable record. He
will go back to his "Beautiful Ohio" in the fall to
enter Dennison Institute.

GILBERT HILLHOUSE BOGGS, JR.
This is the fellow who has become famous of
late as a financier and collector. "Charlie" has
kept himself busy during the past few months
collecting annual fees, and has made a good job
of it, too. He is Class Valedictorian, but has found
time from his studies to take a leading part in all
the leading activities of the school.

FRANK KELLS BOLAND, JR.
The selection of Kells by his classmates to re-
ceive the Atlanta Journal Cup is a tribute, and
means that he is the best all-round fellow in his
class. Scholarship, athletics, and school publica-
tions have found in Kells a real leader.

WILLIAM A. BOYKIN
Another one of those modest fellows, who refuses
to tell us the activities in which he has taken part
during his high school career. He is red-headed,
but lacks the temper that usually goes with that
color of hair. Boykin is well liked by all his class-
mates, and may some day succeed his uncle as
prosecuting attorney of the state.

Inman has been everything from a corporal in
military training to a saxophonist in the band
during his four years at Boys' High. He has the
distinction of having ridden in more different
kinds of automobiles during the past four years
than any other student in the school. A fine fellow,
he is, and loved by all his classmates.

Camp entered in '22, but has developed into a
real Boys' High supporter in the past nine months
of school. He has made himself known by his
willingness to aid in' any and all worthy Boys'

last year in high school, making both the football
and track teams with apparent ease. His "grand-

Clay entered Boys' High in his Junior year, and
has kept the other scholars of the class on the run
ever since. He has amazed both his teachers and
fellow students with his ability to conquer the
hardest lesson assignments, seemingly with ease.
Entered, '22; Honor Roll, '22-'23.
PAUL AUGUSTUS CLEMENT
Old "P. Augustus" would have set the school
on fire with his brilliancy if he could have only
stayed awake for a few minutes during his four
years at Boys' High. As it was, he made the honor
roll, without even exerting himself. As a debater,
Paul has made many of our best hide their faces

HARRY F. DELANEY
Harry came to us from Georgia Academy of the
Blind two years ago, and since that time has made
^ host of friends at Boys' High. He is an excellent

WILLIAM J. DUNCAN
Duncan entered in '21, and his long, lithe, and
graceful figure has been one of the unusual sights
around the school ever since. If he continues to
grow in wisdom and body along the present lines,
he will end in a circus side-show — as the long,
tall human skeleton.
Entered '21; Alciphronian, '21-'22-'23.
WILLIAM J. DUNN
"Beefy" is a member of the Patrick, Pruitt and
Dunn Combination, or the three inseparables as
they are affectionately known. His ability to make
his "adam's apple" perform in a most uncanny
manner has made him famous around the school.

WILLIAM P. DUNN
"Pee Wee" has become Paul Clement's boon
companion during the past year, but has managed
to overcome his friend's tendency to sleep always,
much to the joy of his classmates. He is a like-
able fellow, and is especially popular with certain
young ladies in our fair metropolis, according to

W. C. EDWARDS
Edwards is the cousin of our friend, O. H.
Williamson, but has managed to keep it a secret
from most of his classmates. He finds Chemistry his
hardest study, but, nevertheless, has aspirations of
being a great scientist some day.
Greek, Sam, and Mr. Epps never could "hit it
up" to perfection, tho' our friend and classmate
studied his hardest on the ungodly language.
Someday Sam will be a guide, leading visitors
through the big City Auditorium, for he knows
more nooks and corners in the famous building
than any other person in Atlanta.
ARTHUR E. FOX
"Chick" accomplished a seemingly impossible
task during his four years at Boys' High — he was
friend, advisor, and foe of the faculty, all at the
same time. Without the help of this fellow, the
records in the military department would have
been eternally mussed up. A most popular fellow,
but withal a very modest classmate.

A little man with a big heart and a huge will.
Freeman has little to say on any subject, but no
one does more real thinking. He is quiet and un-
assuming — but, at the same time, gets results.
HENRY JACKSON FULLBRIGHT, JR.
Try as we would, we could not make our friend
"Halfbright" turn in a list of the activities in which
he has taken part. He is small in statue, and
exceedingly modest over his many accomplishments.
He is the originator of the title "pinch-hitter"
for Olney Rankin.
Sam is the greatest little violinist we ever heard-
He has made a dandy record in his studies, especially-
Greek, and plans to enter Emory next fall, where
he will keep up the good work.

Tom's work as assistant advertising manager of
the Alciphronian was one of his greatest successes.
His winsome smile won friends for him amongst

DAVID ROBERT GUARD
Always pleasant, never offensive, and a true
friend is our classmate, Guard. He is a mighty
diligent worker, and is quick to get on to any
situation. He always makes good grades.
ROBERT OLIN HARRIS
"R. O." practically ran his home class during his

ROBERT KING EVATT HULL
This is the fellow who introduced and made
famous "Mr. Gallagher and Mr. Shean", and many
other modern song hits. He has a great voice
for eating soup, but has a unconquerable desire
to sing at banquets. He is also a poet of fame,

A better man than Cecil would be hard to find.

The profession of "certified public accountants"
will take a leap of joy, when Katz finishes his
preparatory education; for in him they are sure to
find an accountant of no mean ability. He has
managed to graduate in three and a half years,
much to the disgust of the faculty.

CALEB J. KING, JR.
"Gloomy Gus' '
Caleb is one of the most punctual boys in the

he has never been tardy, and has been absent
only about one time. His many friends were glad
to see him win the scholarship to Georgia this year.

K. B. is another of Boys' High's old standbys.
He and Mr. Epps became rather chummy during
the past year, all of which was good for McCord,
who happened to be in two of the assistant pincipal's

' 'Hazel' '
This youthful prodigy has astounded everyone
in the school with his ability to absorb knowledge.
He has featured in many of Atlanta's greatest
scandals, and only recently was the defendant in
the biggest breach of promise case ever staged
in our fair metropolis. Through the energetic and
earnest pleading of his most excellent attorney, he
was finally cleared of the charges that might have
wrecked his life.
JAMES BANKS UNDERWOOD NEVIN, JR.
' ' Jimmie' '
Jimmie holds the record in Boys' High for having
passed up more subjects in one term than any
other fellow that has ever been enrolled at our
famous institution for learning. He passed up about
four courses in English, two in history, and a
number of others during his senior year; and
seemed insulted when anyone would ask him how
he did it. He is a regular sheik with the fairer sex,
and is somewhat of a "king" around the home
of a young lady, known as "Bessie."

"Lefty" was our mainstay in swimming this

Dixie, as Seaborn is more widely known, graduated

Since leaving Boys' High, he has become "quite

employ of the Westinghouse Electrical Co.

George has the second highest average in the

the members of the "weaker sex" trail by.

JOHN KNOX SHACKLETT
Shacklett, small of statue but big of heart, is
one of our most renowned women-killers. One look
at this fellow means absolute submission as far as
the members of the fairer sex are concerned. "J. K."
had to have an operation performed on him during
his senior year, and was out of school for quite a
while, but with his characteristic persistence, he
managed to make up all the work he had missed
and to graduate with his classmates.

Seigal is the sort of fellow that one never gets
to know as well as he would like. He is exceptionally
quiet, due to his modesty, and can never be accused
of pushing himself into the limelight. Steady
plugging has made him the master of every course
he took during his Boys' High career.
GORDON A. SMITH
Gordon took a prominent part in all the literary
work of the school — being one of our finest orators.
He won the declaimer's medal in the annual ex-
ercises in '22: and also made an excellent record
in debating during his four years at Boys' High.

WILLIAM HARTWELL SMITH
Billy is one of our most ambitious classmates.
He is planning to enter Harvard in the fall of '24,
and we predict for him much success in the big
eastern university. He graduated this year, but
will probably spend a term in a military school
before trying his luck at Harvard.
J. HOWARD STACY
Stacy is probably the liveliest and most unlucky
member of the senior class. He was continually
in trouble with the professors, but numbers many
of the instructors as his friends just the same.
When he harnesses some of the power that is
contained in his super-energy, he's going to truly
set the world afire.

T. J. STACY
This Stacy entered Boys' High from Hendrix,
Arkansas, in '21; and planned to remain at the
school only through the first semester. But, he
became so attached to the institution, that he
returned for more after the Christmas holidays.
His Ford coupe, and his willingness to run errands
won for him many friends — especially amongst
the faculty members.

FRED S. STEWART
A "gleer" and a dramatist of note is our friend
and classmate Fred Stewart. His voice — a soprano
or something — added much to the interesting pro-
grams the Glee Club presented this year.
Glee Club, '22-'23; Dramatic Club, '22-'23;
Henry entered our famous old school from Russia
in '22, and forthwith became a loyal Boys' High
supporter. He remained with us through the
Christmas Holidays this year, and then left us
to enter Georgia Tech, where he is making an
excellent record. He had the advantage over the
other students in that when he recited the teachers
could not tell whether he was right or not.
JOHN EDWARD TANKSLEY
)J( Tanksley became one of our leading track men
during the past season. He stepped from almost
athletic obscurity to a place alongside our greatest
cinderpath artists in one year. He is a modest,
shy sort of a fellow, but is never afraid to do what
he knows is right.
Plutonian, '22-'23; Hi-Y Club, '23; Track Team,
Tropp came to Boys' High in '20, and managed
by hard work and persistent application to graduate
in three years. He made his greatest success in mili-
tary training where he was recognized as one of the
greatest little corporals Boys' High ever had.

CLIFFORD EUGINE THOMAS
Cliff is a regular fish when it comes to swimming,
and was a member of the swimming team up until

his time. In '22 he managed our tank stars, and
also swam a number of the events himself.

Harry was always to be seen with either the

spent many pleasant hours in company with some
of his classmates in the Auditorium, but while in
the classroom he was a most sincere student.
Alpha Sigma Pi.
Upshaw came to Boys' High from Kirkwood,
following the merge of the small suburb with the
City of Atlanta, and made us a valuable man during

squad with evident ease, and also took a prominent
part in other school activities.

Ward was one of our best riflemen during the

This Ward happens not to be a kinsman to

same as his red-headed namesake. When Eugene
Ward goes to the Forsyth, W. A. usually goes to

classmates all about the show the following day,
and is one of the Bonita's greatest advertisers.

WILLIAM CLARKE WARDLAW, JR.
Wardlaw is a scholar, and an athlete of no mean
ability. He was a member of our swimming team
during the past season, and his work aided much
in bringing the City Prep Championship to Boys'
High. As assistant business manager of the annual,
he should get much of the credit for the success
of the publication, if perchance there is any.

■ Young first won fame in Atlanta as a Boy Scout,
winning many of the highest honors that can
come to a member of the Scout organization. At
the end of his sophomore year, "Johnnie" left
Boys' High for North Carolina, where he attended
school during the '21-'22 term. At the beginning
of this year, he was back at Boys' High, where he
received a warm welcome from his many friends
in the school.
We were standing on the summit of a snow capped mountain high ;
Around, the loftier mountains towered upward toward the sky ;
Each leaf and blossom spangled with the dew-drops, pearly white,
Reflecting back a rainbow as they caught the earliest light.
The whispering trees were stirring as they breathed the wind of morn,
And across the far-off mountain ridges the golden light was born.
We descended from the mountain toward the fields of golden grain,
Breathed the fragrance of the wild flowers ; saw the flocks upon the
Saw the misty river flowing past twixt its banks of mossy green.
Saw its waters, clear, reflecting all the sunset's varied sheen ;
Saw the clouds of royal purple and the glory of the gold.
Saw the blue and crimson banners flutter outward, fold on fold.
We drew nearer to the village, saw the home lights gleaming far ;
While above the fading sunset, shone a silver, evening star.

Frederick Graham Matheson
When Graham's father, Dr. K. G. Matheson,
accepted the presidency of Drexel Institute in
Philadelphia in 1922, he left Atlanta — and Boys'
High lost one of her most popular and promis-
; ( ing students. Graham had completed three }
years work, and would have graduated with the
Class of '23. During his three years at Boys'
High he held many of the highest offices in the
school, and his classmates bestowed many hon-
ors on him. Our loss was Haverford's gain!
Senior Class Poem
Oh mighty school, long hast thou watch'd with Time
From thy hoar walls, thy children pass and rise
To fame, true issue of thy nurture wise.
Through generations vanish'd. Light sublime
From thee illuminates the path they climb :
The joys they've had, their fresh'ning zeal, the ties,
Thy halls of learning tow'ring to the skies.
Thy children celebrate in endless rhyme.
But yesterday it seems when thou did'st take
Us, class of three and twenty, by the hand —
So fleet the years have fled. And now the day
When thy protecting arms we must forsake
Is come, "Oh Lord, our God, make firm our stand
"For Truth and Right; Exalt Boys' High," we pray.

their Senior life — and if the past is any key to the future,

To our friends and fellow students in the lower classes, we send a
plea for aid in making next year the best in the history of Boys' High !

Sophomore Class History
wo years have only served as a starter for tfie members of
the Class of '25 ! What success we have made in the past,
is only a fore-runner of the success we predict for our class
in the future.
With two years still left for us to serve Boys' High,
the members of our class have definite plans for bringing
new glory to our school.
We have in the Class much talent, and this talent and ability is
divided amongst many various types of high school work. Such schol-
ars as Hall, Hill, and McGinty are a credit to any school ; while ath-
letes of the caliber of McGinty and Boland are certain to win fame for
themselves and their class before many years pass.
In James Jacobs, and Dean Rusk, we feel that we have two orators
that could hold their own anywhere. But, athletes, orators, and schol-
ars are not the only features that our class may proudly claim. Instead,
we have contributed much to every activity of the school during the
past two years. The school paper, the glee club, the dramatic club, the
literary societies — all have found support in the Class of '25.

Freshman Class History
ITH only nine months of our high school careers over, the
Class of '26 has already caught the spirit of ole Boys' High,
and all things point to a decided success for the class. There
is some little doubt as to whether we will finish our entire
four years of high school in the famous building in which
we have received our first year's instruction ; for there is a
possibility of the new S'enior Boys High School being com-
pleted before the day of our scheduled graduation.
But, whether the remainder of our high school days are spent here
or elsewhere, there is one thing certain — and that is, that there are many
loyal Boys High supporters in the Class of '26.
We have enjoyed the true high school spirit that we have lived
within for the past nine months, and are looking forward with great
expectations to future years of success and service for Boys High.

HE military department this term enjoyed what might truth-
fully be termed its "banner year". Practically all of our
pupils were military students, and the work of the depart-
ment was better organized and conducted than it has been
Colonel Little, head of the Atlanta Public Schools' Mil-
itary Unit, along with high officials of the Fourth Corps
Area R. O. T. C. Division, frequently reviewed our battalion ; and al-
ways had a word of praise for the fine type of work being done at
Captain Miller, Sergeant Perry, and Student-Major Allen deserve
much credit for the showing our battalion made in competitive drills,
parades, and reviews during the past year.

HE school year, 1922-23, has been a banner one for Boys'
High as far as athletics and sports are concerned. We have
won only two championships, it is true ; and have lost
many an athletic encounter, but the year has been cram-
full of glory for our teams.
Where we have lost a game, we have shared in the
glory ; for if ever Boys' High turned out teams that acquit-
ted themselves as favorably as did the teams this year, the writer has
never heard mention of it. With practically little or no veteran material
in any sport, our coaches have rounded out squads that comi-are favor-
ably with any in the city or state. Seasons opened with dismal failure,
our only prospect, but before many games had been played failure was
turned into decided success.
What our players have lacked in experience and physical prowess,
has been made up in sheer "grit". Sport writers all over Georgia have
commented on the fighting spirit of our teams this year, and the school
has been proud to claim such outfits as her own.
The state championship in basketball, and the city championship in
swim,ming have come to our teams as deserved rewards. But, in sports
where we missed the championship, we made an enviable record this
year. The best judges of the sort of teams we had are our opponents —
ask them !

T the beginning of the football season in 1922, things looked
extremely bad for Boys' High. Prospects for turning out
a football team were very dark. With the exception of Ce-
cil Jamison and Kells Boland, the entire varsity squad of
1921 had graduated, and very few boys in the school had
ever had any gridiron experience.
The school realized the great handicap that Boys' High
was to suffer, so when Coach Winkler sounded the first call for foot-
ball, over a hundred willing candidates responded. These fellov/s work-
ed with unusual zeal for three or four weeks, and under expert coach-
ing, a football team was finally shaped up, the two veterans serving as
a nucleus around which the 1922 squad was built.
Time for practice was short, and the first game of the season was
played before a squad had been picked definitely. This game, against
LaGrange, resulted in a disastrous defeat for our eleven, but the team
was not the least bit daunted.
Our team suffered defeat after defeat, but always won the praise
of fans and sport writers for their "never-say-die" spirit and their earn-
estness in battle. The second game of the season, with University
school, proved conclusively that what our team lacked in weight and
experience they made up in grit. Our plucky little eleven circled Uni-
versity's line for two touchdowns, a seemingly impossible feat. For-
ward passes became the main reliance of the little squad, and heavier
and more experienced teams found a relentless foe in the Boys' High
The final game of the season with Tech High made the Purple and
White team famous. The Tech High squad outweighed our players
many pounds to the man, and the Smithy team was made up largely of
veteran players. Sport writers predicted a disastrous defeat for Boys'
High, and betting odds were all against us.
But, the result of the battle was far different from, what had been
expected. Tech High won it is true, but by three points only, and then
after the most desperate fight her team had ever encountered. The
winning three points were made by Tech High in the last three min-
utes of play on a beautiful drop-kick from about the fifteen yard line
Line-bucks, end runs, fake plays, and every other line of offensive by
the Junior Smithies had been of no avail against the small but plucky
Purple Hurricane. It was Tech High's game, but our victory!

HE basketball season this year was a most successful one
for Boys' High. Out of seventeen games with the lead-
ing teams of the state, we won twelve victories, practically
all of them by a big margin of points. Our five defeats, on
the other hand, were lost to our opponents with small dif-
ferences in the number of points scored by the two teams,
two of the defeats going as victories to opposing fives by
one-point margins, another by a two-point lead, and the other two with
margins almost as small.
Pat Stevens, captain of our squad, was the outstanding star in the
city and state prep circles, being the highest individual scorer in the
City Prep League, and ranking high in state-wide circles also. The
other members of the squad were equally well-known by their perform-
ances on the court.
In the regular prep league championship race, we finished third,
with 463 points to our credit as compared with 303 for opposing teams.
The G. I. A. A. tourney at Macon, lasting three days, brought more
glory on the team. Our squad faced three of the best quintets in the
state, and won all three contests, giving us the state championship.
First, we defeated the Monroe A. & M., then we took on our ancient
rivals, Tech High. Dope had it that Tech High should win by a neat
margin, but when the smoke of battle had cleared away Boys' High was
hanging onto the big end of a 28-24 score. The next day we met Lanier
High, the undefeated champions of Georgia for two years, and in a
hectic struggle that made nervous-wrecks of all spectators, we handed
them a neat little defeat, winning 25-23, much to the surprise of every-

and closed our basketball season in a flame of glory.

UR baseball nine was the puzzle of the prep league this
year. Practically all of the 1922 team had graduated, and
things looked almost as bad at the beginning of the season
for us as they had in football, during the previous fall. But
Coach David and Duby White, ex-Boys' High player him-
self, managed to build up one of the strongest teams in the
prep league by the latter part of the baseball season.
The first four games we played resulted in victories for our oppon-
ents, and sport writers and fans, predicted a disastrous season for the
Purple and White nine. But, the worm turned, and in the very next
game Boys' High won her first victory of the season over Decatur High.
Tech High was defeated by us in the first game, in which we met our
ancient rivals, and things began to look decidedly different. Six suc-
cessive games were chalked up as six successive victories for the Boys'
High team, and sport writers and fans began to scratch their heads in
wonder. Where disastrous defeat had once stared our team in the face,
clouds of success were now evident, and people began to believe that
Boys' High couldn't lose a game, no matter who her opponent.
Then the worm turned again, and our team lost two games in suc-
cession. The next game was won by us by a three-point lead over
G. M. A., and the next two we lost. The final count of the season gave
us seven victories out of fourteen encounters, one of the defeats being
a post-season game at that.
Thomas H. Pitts, owner of the soft drink emporium at Five Points,
offered a beautiful loving cup to the winner of two out of three games
between Boys' High and Tech High, the ancient rivals of the City Prep
League. In the first game against the Junior Smithies Boys' High was
returned victor, in the next Tech High. This evened the count and
necessitated a post-season game to decide the winner of the cup. The
third game, a pitcher's duel all the way through, was won by Tech
High, 2-0. This gave our rivals possession of the cup, but, when details
of the game were printed, it was readily seen that the defeat was not so
bad after all. McGahee, pitching for Boys' High, pitched a no-hit game,
while his opponent, Speer, on the mound for Tech High, gave up two
hits. This game, and the performance of McGahee will long be remem-
bered in and around prep baseball circles.

HE season of 1923 was Boys' High most successful track
season, since the inauguration of the sport in the school
many years ago. With Coach C. S. Ward, an old Emory
University track star and holder of many records, direct-
ing the destinies of the team ; and with as many candidates
as we had, there was little chance of failure.
The showing of our relay teams were probably the lead-
ing feature of the track season as far as Boys' High was concerned.
Entered in three relay contests our team came through with one victory,
one second, and one third place. Quite a dandy record, when the teams
against whom our squad fought are considered.
Our team was entered in the Tech Relays, the biggest track event
the South has seen in a long, long time. In the 440 yard relay, our team,
composed of Kontz, Boone, Jamison, Rives and Tankersley (alternate),
nosed in ahead, and were awarded medals. The next relay in which
our team competed was in an "A" class contest in the same Tech re-
lays. The team was just a little behind the leaders here and was placed
In the city prep meet our relay team held the lead for three laps,
only to lose it by a few inches to Tech High on the home stretch. The
finish was so close and exciting that Boys' High was given almost as
much glory as the winning team.
Our cinder path warriors won second place in the City Prep meet,
with totals from all events considered. This sort of a showing isn't bad
for a team of tracksters, who have had little or no experience before —
and if predictions mean anything at all. Boys' High is going to win a
lot of championships on the track in future seasons.

HE B. H. S. Swimming Team "ran wild" this year, winning
every meet in which it entered — and finally taking the City
Prep Championship, with a score just twice as large as
that of the nearest competitor.
"Bill" Noyes, the captain, was easily the outstanding
prep tank star in local circles ; scoring a total of 40^^ points
in the three meets in which he participated. Other mem-
bers of the squad did nearly as well, making the Boys' High team prac-
tically immune to defeat.
To Coach Crowder is due much praise for the showing of the squad
this season. From November 14 until the end of the school term, he
worked untiringly, putting his "all" into turning out a championship
team. His efforts resulted in much glory for "ole high school" ; and
to him the entire school votes sincere thanks.
The scores in the City Prep Meet, held May 14th, at East Lake
Country Club, are proof enough of the fine team that represented Boys'
High this year. Here they are:
Boys' High, 40 points; Tech High, 20 points; G. M. A., 16 points;
Marist, 5 points.

Leo J. Block, Prophet.
HIS was the first class reunion I had attended, being so
busy amassing my millions in the great city of New York.
I was, of course, very glad of the opportunity to greet all
of the good fellows of the Class of '23.
When my train pulled in at the station, I was met by
a welcoming delegation and I was indeed honored. Head-
ing the delegation was the mayor's secretary, my next-
door-neighbor in classes at Boys' High, "Dick" Block. He apologized
for the inability of His Honor, the mayor, to be present and welcome
me personally, but explained that His Honor was addressing the mem-
bers of the Woman's Club on "Eighteen Hundred Divorce Causes."
The mayor, I later learned, was Tropp — another of the '23's. Other
dignitaries in the delegation that met me were Berlin, U. S. Senator
from the State of Georgia ; Freeman, who had a flourishing pencil busi-
ness — all personnae ; Anthony, who had become a banker (of furnaces)
in an uptown building ; and Noyes, who held the important position of
Municipal Life Saver — whose task it was to save strangers from drown-
ing in Atlanta's street puddles. Branch was hanging on the outside of
the crowd, anxiously awaiting an opportunity to interview me for the
Journal, on which paper he was serving as a "cub reporter".
As soon as I had settled in my hotel, I called up Sharp's Detective
Agency and had Sharp, an old classmate, personally trace all of the
Class of '23. Imagine my varied feelings when three days later I re-
ceived the following report:
Per your request, I have personally traced the members of the
Class of '23, and submit herewith the following report of my findings,
all of which I know to be authentic :
King has becoine so interested in Greek that he has opened a Greek
Lewis is on the stage as a concert singer, and reports say he is a
Rouland, depending on his high school training, is the "alibi ex-

Bird is the manipulator of a flute in the World's Largest Symphony
Boykin, inheriting a peculiar liking for court life, is subpoena serv-

Brandon now heads the Order of Efficient Street Sweepers, and
it is rumored that his re-election to this honorary office is certain.
Duncan, light fingered as ever, has had his pictures spread broad-
cast over the land on bills bearing in large type the word "Reward!"
"Pee Wee" Dunn, as a Russian dancer, is rated as a high kicker.

Why are the dolls with the baby stare,
With the dimpled cheeks and the cute bobbed hair,
Who look so sweet, so pure, so stainless.
Almost absolutely brainless?
Oh yes, they know how to wear the clothes.
How to rouge their lips and roll their hose;
But when it comes to common sense,

Why also are the homeliest dames.
Whose mugs to beauty have no claims.
On whom to look gives the eyes a pain.
Possessors of the most useful brain?
Oh, Nature! Why dost thou disguise.
With beauty that which empty lies,
While that which isn't with beauty blest
Thou dost with common sense invest?

And Now —
The Staff of the "Alciphronian" for 1923 make
their final request to you, kind reader and subscrib-
er. If you have found within the pages of this
volume any feature that will in future years fan

But, if you have looked over the pages of this
latest volume of the "Alciphronian", and still feel

us the consolation of believing that we have put
our best into the task that was entrusted to us, and
that if we have failed we regret it far more than
you possibly can.
WE THANK YOU!

The Advisability of Going to College
By Cecil Jamison.
OME one has said, "No car is complete without its tool
box". Neither is a human machine complete without the
fine tool of a college education. This question of going
to college has been long since settled in the minds of most
people. There is no doubt that each year a larger percent-
age gradually realize this fact.
Let us consider for a moment the commercial value of
a college education. Not even the most ardent supporter of non-col-
lege education can deny that most large firms not only want but de-
mand that their executives be college bred, and that men with college
educations are given precedence in applications for all positions.
Some contend that not all great or successful men have had col-
lege training. True enough, but these same men achieved success in
spite of the lack of this training. They are always first to urge col-
lege for others. If a man succeeds without the educational equipment
of a college training, how much more successful he would be with it !
Not only should we educate ourselves for financial benefit, but also
for the joy that knowledge brings. This after all is the main consider-
ation, for nothing is comparable to the pleasure of being able to read
and speak on a vast multitude of subjects.
In this day and time when education is within the reach of all, it
is imperative that we take advantage of the opportunity, and develop
our minds in the institutions of higher learning.

Atlanta Rotarians Advise Boys to Remain
TO THE BOYS OF ATLANTA:
We, the members of the Atlanta Rotary Club, interested always in the
growth, development, training and success of the boys of our city and
of the nation, wish to urge every boy in the city to take advantage of
the school opportunities presented and to remain in school.
TO STAY IN SCHOOL means financial success. The average earn-
ings of the boy who completes high school is more than $20,000 in ex-
cess of the earnings of the boy who drops out of school at the close of
his grammar school career.
TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means enjoyment of the highest and best
things in life. The boy who remains in high school until he finishes
and has the advantage of a college education will receive from art,
literature, from association with men and women the greater pleasures
and greater happiness than those who surrender their educational ad-
vantages and start to work too early. \ (
TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means the ability to become a social lead-
er. Life is made up of our associations with our fellows. For a boy to
complete his high school and college education gives him the opportun-
ity of social leadership that is unexcelled.
TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means business leadership. While now
and then a few of our greatest business men may rise from the ranks
of the uneducated, these are the exceptions and not the rule. 92 per cent
of all the great and successful business men are those who have at least
acquired high school training.
TO REMAIN IN SCHOOL means to double and treble your efficiency
as a great social and political unit in our nation's life. It means serv-
ice above self. It means that your life will be multiplied in usefulness
of those round about you.
Believing and relying on these great fundamental facts, the Atlanta
Rotary Club urges you and all the boys of our city, to keep s ep with
the progress of the ages, and to keep step with the best educational
thoughts, and to remain in the high school.
